Danleigh Borman

Reds To Revs For Borman

Out of contract former Toronto FC fullback Danleigh Borman has been selected by the New England Revolution in the first phase of the Re-Entry Draft.

Borman arrived in Toronto last season from New York Red Bulls and immediately became a regular on the left side of Toronto's backline. However, the emergence of homegrown Canadian international Ashtone Morgan - via Toronto FC Academy - made it difficult for Borman to get regular playing time for the BMO Field club.

A native of South Africa, Borman played 22 MLS games for Toronto (18 starts), providing three assists.

Toronto, like most MLS teams, did not use its selection in the Re-Entry Draft. Aside from New England using its pick, Chivas USA selected attacking midfielder Arturo Alvarez and Columbus Crew acquired defender Carlos Mendes.

Second phase of the Re-Entry Process takes place Monday, December 12. More information here.
